Ready for the upcoming racing season? Let's do a check.
Gates are dropping soon, you better get ready for that. Here is a checklist of the things you definitely need to check ASAP.
Make sure your bike is ready. That means the suspensions are set up on your weight and riding style, handlebar let your ride comfortable, grips gives you a good feeling, levers are in the perfect position, clutch is regulated, exhaust has a good sound (but let you pass the sound check), engine is perfectly working and reviewed, footpegs let you move nimbly among the ruts and the seat is stiff enough to support your fat ass. And last but not least, make sure your bike looks awesome, you need to feel sexually attracted by her.
Tools and stuff. There are maybe a hundered of other small things that usually we do not consider when we prepare for a race. But those things are mandatory to be set if you don’t want bad surprises. Your bike stand must be light and in one piece, the ties for the bike must be replaced quite often to avoid bad situations, you’d better also do a check on your tools, it’s so easy to loose some wrench…

Outfit for the race
From head to toe, let’s try to be fresher than ever this year.
Helmet: first of all, your helmet doesn’t have to be the lightest, the most colorful, the cheapest. It must be the safest. We have to thank god that the coolest helmet on the market is also the one with the best safety systems. I’m talking about the Bell Moto-9 Flex.
Goggles: we wrote something in the past about this and our toughts aren’t changed. Scott Prospect is the best compromise of price, quality, accessories. And their new graphics are great.
Race wear: your kit needs to be stilish, comfortable, transpirant and must last for more than 3 races. If you consider all of the keywords above, you restrict your research a lot. We went with Seven MX this year, unrivalled freedom of mobility, top quality materials and sick design.
Gloves: Whipriders gloves of course. They’re like a second skin!
Paddock king. If you want to stand out from the other guys in the paddock, you should wear something different. So let’s stop using fluo-colored jackets with tons of ugly useful logos. We prefer to wear our clean clothing and give visibility only to the sponsors that really support us, better if less, but real. Take a look at our casual wear and get inspired.
